Nice walk down the paseo, some of the buildings are truly beautiful. At the end you have a couple of big hotels. Good for taking a break

Great little shops and sights line the Paseo de Montejo. IT is well worth planning your trip to Merida around a weekend. The weekend we were there, the Paseo was closed off to cars and free bicycle rentals were available. There was a fun run...More

The Paseo Montejo is a must for any traveller to Merida. It is an elegant Avenue. Stroll up and down at your leisure. I love this boulevard, filled with amazing houses dating back to the time of the green gold, sisal.
